    Angry Geled oil filter

    I have a 2000 seadoo rx that has geled another oil filter after 5 hours running on a fully rebuilt motor and has ceased again. It was running the seadoo oil and the sea doo repairer has told me its not his problem as hes done nothing wrong. What can i do???????

    are you getting water in the oil?? pressure check the oil tank??
    change to a different oil??
    obviously something is causing oil to gel. was the tank drained /cleaned?
    or just oil filter replaced??
    are you running really old oil?
    different brands? older seadoo oil with newer seadoo oil?switch to premix at this point.
    easy guarantee to get proper oil.

    Did you mix 2 different brands or kinds of oil? How old was the oil you used?

    certainly sounds like two different makes of oil gelling, I was always taught that it could happen when I was an apprentice but never saw it myself.

    Was the XPS the same color oil that was in there previously? Or do you even know what was in there previously?

    The original XPS was green. Then came XPS DI, then XPSII, which both are brown.

    BRP would never admit that these oils would gel if mixed, but it must be a possibility.

    End result- oil filters are cheap. Replace them annually, and never change oils.

    Steve...btw...this is his problem. If he has any knowledge of Doos then he should have replaced this filter when he did the rebuild. It could have easily been the reason why it seized the first time. But...good luck getting it done for free...
